FRIENDS OF THE SPRINGFIELD ART MUSEUM AT A GLANCE
FOSAM's History and Mission
“The Friends of the Springfield Art Museum was formed in 1982 for the purpose of bringing educational lectures and exhibits to the museum. As an organization, dedicated to furthering artistic education in Springfield, the Friends of the Springfield Art Museum organizes programs and lectures that provide educational support.”
As reported in the Springfield News-Leader in July 1984
Over the years, members of the FOSAM family have not only met that mandate but have expanded it in beneficial ways. FOSAM teams and committees have worked on behalf of the Museum to produce and sponsor over 120 exhibitions, receptions, gallery talks, educational lectures, special fundraising events and functions.
